THIS AMERICAN THEATRE CLASSIC EXPLORES ALTERNATIVES THAT MIGHT SPRING FROM THE DEMENTED TERRAIN OF THE CALIFORNIA LANDSCAPE THROUGH SONS OF A DESERT DWELLING ALCOHOLIC WHO CLASH OVER A FILM SCRIPT.   AUSTIN, THE ACHIEVER AND SCREENWRITER, IS HOUSE-SITTING FOR THEIR MOTHER, AND IS CONFRONTED BY HIS BROTHER LEE, A PETTY THIEF AND CRIMINAL, WHO HAS ALSO RETURNED HOME. THE CONFLICT BETWEEN THE BROTHERS CREATES A SIMMERING DRAMA WITH SPLASHES OF DARK COMEDY IN WHICH THEIR IDEA OF THEMSELVES AND EACH OTHER ARE CHALLENGED.
